Madhya Pradesh grants third higher pay scale to government employees

BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh cabinet chaired by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan here Tuesday decided to grant third higher pay scale to the government employees who have got benefit of only 2 promotion/time-bound promotion/time scale since appointment in government service and who have completed 30 years or more in service as on July 1, 2014 or thereafter. The decision will entail a burden of Rs 418 crore on the exchequer.

Service period for third higher pay scale will be calculated on the basis of current service since assuming post after being directly recruited through competitive/selection test. The government servants who are eligible for time scale on the basis of service period and whose promoted post’s time scale pay scale/grade pay is less in accordance with service rules, their educational qualifications prescribed in service rules will not be considered for eligibility for time scale/pay scale.

Mukhyamantri Grameen Parivahan Yojana

The cabinet decided to implement Mukhyamantri Grameen Parivahan Yojana for making available safe and convenient public transport service in remote villages and tribal areas of the state. This will also help socio-economic growth in these areas.

Under the scheme, those roads will be considered as rural roads which connect villages to the nearest main roads or with blocks/tehsils (except district headquarters). These roads may also include parts of main roads, but not more than 10 kilometres long.

The public transport vehicles to be plied on these roads will be given a specific colour for their unique identity so that they are not misused in other areas. Mukhyamantri Grameen Parivahan Sewa will be inscribed on both sides of the vehicles, which will be equipped with GPS.

Lifetime motor vehicle tax will be realised for the vehicles of Mukhyamantri Grameen Parivahan Yojana at the rate of one percent. Permit will be issued for 5 years and additional motor vehicle tax will not have to be paid on renewal.

For providing employment through this scheme, capital/interest subsidy will be given under “Mukhyamantri Swarozgar Yojana”. The Service will be monitored by a state-level committee. District/Regional Transport Officers will monitor the scheme at district level.
